LTAC organized three workshops entitled “In a Translator’s Mind” during Montreal’s Salon du livre last November. Four LTAC members participated as well as three poets from Mexico, the guest country for this year’s Salon’s.
With support from the Conseil des arts de Montréal, the workshops helped familiarize the audience with the translation process. Danièle Marcoux and Jean-Pierre Pelletier proposed their version of a poem by Claudia Hernández de Valle Arizpe while Hugh Hazelton and Hélène Rioux proposed two authors each, Francisco Hinojosa then Alberto Ruy Sánchez.
The stated goal of LTAC is to work with other literary events Canada-wide to promote both the translation profession and its members’ expertise.
